CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KVET-A (AM 1300 THE ZONE)/AUSTIN morning host and former UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS running backs coach BUCKY GODBOLT has exited the station, and is being replaced by a simulcast of sister Sports KTKR-A (TICKET 760)/SAN ANTONIO morning host MIKE TAYLOR's show 6-8a (CT). The change will take place THURSDAY (5/23) and will also shift FOX SPORTS RADIO's DAN PATRICK and JAY MOHR to live clearances and add JON MADANI to the "SPORTS BUFFET" afternoon show, which is expanding to five hours.
"We’re excited to add MIKE TAYLOR’s show to the KVET AM morning drive lineup," said VP/Operations JAT SHANNON. "He has proven his success in SAN ANTONIO and we’re thrilled to now have him on the LONGHORN flagship station here in AUSTIN."
“MIKE brings a fresh perspective and a unique personality to sports radio that listeners will gravitate to”, said Market Pres. PAM MCKAY. “We look forward to him not only continuing THE ZONE’s success and momentum, but also growing our AUSTIN audience."
